2012 CloudStack Design Camp in Taiwan--- CloudStack Overview-2

  1. 1. CloudStack  Overview  (Cont’d)   Roxanne_Chang  @  Tcloud  compu4ng  
  2. 2. Outline  •  Management  Server  Internals  •  Workflow  of  Management  Server  •  Extending  Plugins  to  CloudStack  •  High  Availability  •  Scalability  •  CloudStack  v.s.  OpenStack  v.s.   Eucalyptus  •  CloudStack  Par4cipa4on  
  3. 3. Management  Server  Internals   •  Architecture   •  Workflow   •  High  Availability   •  Scalability    
  4. 4. Old  Architecture   EC2   CloudStack   API  Layer   Access  Control   Virtual  Machine  Manager   Console  Proxy  Manager   Async  Job  Manager   Template  Manager   Snapshot  Manager   Network  Manager   Storage  Manager   …   Agent Manager XenServer   KVM  Resource   SRX  Resource   NetScaler   Other  Resources   F5  Resource   Resource   Resource  4
  5. 5. New  Deployment  Architecture  
  6. 6. New  Architecture  –  API  Server   Other     UI   Cloud  Portal   CLI   Clients     REST   API Server Pluggable  API  Engine   OAM&P  API   End  User  API   EC2  API   Other  APIs   Management  Services     &  Authen4ca4on   ACL   Integra4on   -­‐  Resource  management   -­‐  Accounts,  Domains,  and     -­‐  Configura4on   Projects   -­‐  Addi4onal  opera4ons  added  by   -­‐  ACL,  limits  checking   third  party   Framework   -­‐  Job  Queue     -­‐  Database  Access  Layer   -­‐  OSGi  
  7. 7. New  Architecture  –  Execu4on  Server   Execution Server Services  API   Kernel   Plugins   •  Drives  long  running  VM  opera4ons   •  Storage  Handling   •  Syncs  between  resources  managed  and   •  Network  Handling   DB   •  Deployment   •  Generates  events   planning   •  Hypervisor   Handling     Framework   •  Cluster  Management   •  Job  Management   •  Alert  &  Event  Management   •  Database  Access  Layer   •  Messaging  Layer  
  8. 8. New  Architecture  –  Resources   Agent •  Resources  are  carried  in   Hypervisor  Resources   service  VMs  to  be  in  close   network  proximity  to  the   Network  Resources   physical  resources  it   Storage  Resources   manages  Image  &  Template  Resources   •  Easily  scales  to  u4lize  the   most  abundant  resource  in   Snapshot  Resources   data  center  (CPU  &  RAM)   •  Communicates  with   Execu4on  Server  over   message  bus  (JSON)   •  Can  be  replicated  for  fault   tolerance    
  9. 9. Comparison  of  two  Approaches  •  Stats  Collector  –  collects  capacity  sta4s4cs   –  Fires  every  five  minutes  to  collect  stats  about  host   CPU  and  memory  capacity   –  Smart  server  and  dumb  client  model:   •  Resource  only  collects  info  and  management  server   processes  •  VM  Sync   –  Fires  every  minute   –  Peer  to  peer  model:     •  Resource  does  a  full  sync  on  connec4on  and  delta  syncs   thereacer.    Management  server  trusts  on  resource  for   correct  informa4on.  
  10. 10. Cloud   Other   UI   CLI   Clients   Portal   Management  Server   REST  API   OAM&P  API   End  User  API   EC2  API   Other  APIs   Pluggable  Service  API  Engine   Console  Proxy   ACL  &  Authen4ca4on   Security  Adapters   Management   -­‐  Accounts,  Domains,  and  Projects   -­‐  ACL,  limits  checking   Account  Management  Connectors  Template  Access   Services  API   Deployment  Planning   Plugin  API   Kernel   HA   -­‐  Drives  long  running  VM  opera4ons   Network  Configura4ons   Services  API   -­‐  Syncs  between  resources  managed   Usage   and  DB   Calcula4ons   -­‐  Generates  events   Network  Elements   Addi4onal   Services   Hypervisor  Gurus   Cluster   Resource   Job   Alert  &  Event   Database   Management   Management   Management   Management   Access   Event  Bus   Message  Bus   Hypervisor   Network   Storage   Image   Snapshot   Resources   Resources   Resources   Resources   Resources  
  11. 11. Workflow  of  Management  Server  
  12. 12. Workflow  of  Management  Server   Plugins   cmd.execute()   Plugins   Cmds   Plugins   Async  CS  API   API   Job   Services   Servlet   Queue   API   Mgr   Kernel   Responses   Agent  API   (Commands)   Agent   Resources   Manager   Local   Or   Remote   Hypervisor   Network   Na4ve   Device   APIs   API   MySQL  
  13. 13. Balancing  Incoming  Requests  •  Each  management  server  has  two  worker  thread   pools   –  Executor  threads  provided  by  tomcat   –  Job  threads  wai4ng  on  job  queue  •  DB  opera4ons     –  short  in  dura4on     –  executed  by  executor  threads  •  Requests  needing  resources   –  ocen  have  long  running  dura4ons,     –  checked  against  ACL  by  the  executor  threads     –  queued  and  executed  by  job  threads.  
  14. 14. Interac4ons   OVM  Cluster   Primary   Storage   vcenter   Monitoring     Primary   CS  API   vSphere  Cluster   Storage   End   User  UI   Primary   XS  Cluster   Storage   Admin   UI   Clustered   CloudStack   XAPI   Domain   CS  Admin  &     CloudStack   CloudStack   End-­‐user  API   Primary   Admin   UI   Management   JSON   KVM  Cluster   Storage   Server   NetConf   Juniper  SRX  Cloud  user   Nitro  API  {API  client  (Fog/etc)}   VNC   JSON   ec2  API     JSON   Netscaler   Cloud  user   Console   Console   {ec2  API  client  }   Proxy  VM   Proxy  VM   NFS     MySQL   Server   {Proxied}  SSH   Sec.  Storage   NFS   NFS   Sec.  Storage   VM   Ajax   HTTPS   VM   Console   Router  VM   HTTP  (Template  Download)   Router  VM   HTTP  (Template  Copy)   Router  VM   Cloud  user   HTTP  (Swic)  
  15. 15. Extends  Plugins  to  CS  
  16. 16. Plugins  •  Various  ways  to  add  more  capability  to   CloudStack  •  Implements  clearly  defined  interfaces  •  All  opera4ons  must  be  idempotent  •  Compiles  only  against  the  Plugin  API  module  
  17. 17. Anatomy  of  a  Plugin       Rest  API   -­‐  Op4onal.    Required  only  if  needs  to  expose  configura4on  API  to  admin.   ServerResource   -­‐  Op4onal.    Required   if  Plugin  needs  to  be   co-­‐located  with  the   resource   -­‐  Implements   Plugin  API   transla4on  layer  to   Implementa4on   talk  to  resource   -­‐  Communicates  with   server  component   via  JSON     Data  Access  Layer  
  18. 18. Anatomy  of  a  Plugin  •  Can  be  two  jars:     –  server  component  to  be  deployed  on  management   server     –  an  op4onal  ServerResource  component  to  be   deployed  co-­‐located  with  the  resource  •  Server  component  can  implement  mul4ple  Plugin   APIs  to  affect  its  feature   –  As  an  example,  OVS  plugin  actually  implements  both   NetworkGuru  and  NetworkElement  •  Can  expose  its  own  API  through  Pluggable  Service   so  administrators  can  configure  the  plugin  
  19. 19. Plugin  Interfaces  Available  •  NetworkGuru  –  Implements  various  network  isola4on  technologies   and  ip  address  technologies  •  NetworkElement  –  Facilitate  network  services  on  network  elements   to  support  a  VM  (i.e.  DNS,  DHCP,  LB,  VPN,  Port  Forwarding,  etc)  •  DeploymentPlanner  –  Different  algorithms  to  place  a  VM  and   volumes.  •  Inves4gator  –  Ways  to  find  out  if  a  host  is  down  or  VM  is  down.  •  Fencer  –  Ways  to  fence  off  a  VM  if  the  state  is  unknown  •  UserAuthen4cator  –  Methods  of  authen4ca4ng  a  user  •  SecurityChecker  –  ACL  access  •  HostAllocator  –  Provides  different  ways  to  allocate  host  •  StoragePoolAllocator  –  Provides  different  ways  to  allocate  volumes  
  20. 20. High  Availability  
  21. 21. High  Availability  •  Service  Offering  contains  a  flag  for  whether   HA  should  be  supported  for  the  VM  •  Does  not  use  the  na4ve  HA  capability  of   hypervisors  •  Uses  adapters  to  fine  tune  HA  process  
  22. 22. Triggering  High  Availability    VM  HA  are  triggered  via  the  following  methods:  •  VM  Sync  detects  out  of  band  VM  changes  •  Resource  Management  detects  that  a  resource  is   unreachable  and  its  state  can  not  be  determined.  •  VM  start/stop  has  been  sent  to  the  resource  but   resource  does  not  return  •  Details  of  how  high  availability  is  done  is  at   hip://­‐ _Developers_Guide  
  23. 23. Scalability  
  24. 24. Current  Status  •  10k  resources  managed  per  management   server  node  •  Real  produc4on  deployment  of  tens  of   thousands  of  resources  •  Internal  tes4ng  with  socware  simulators  up  to   30k  physical  resources  with  300k  VMs   managed  by  4  management  server  nodes
